Can consumer grade fabrics be functionalized to facilitate the capture of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere?
In a decade characterized by record heat and terrifying weather, mitigating the impacts of climate change becomes more important by the day. From droughts that stretch years to rising sea levels, a changing climate threatens to cause irreparable harm in both life and property. While difficult and expensive, carbon capture remains a tantalizing option to reduce the worst consequences of climate change.
Team CAPTURE seeks to improve the impact of carbon capture through increased distribution. By functionalizing consumer grade fabric for carbon capture, Team CAPTURE hopes to build the foundational technology that empowers everyday products - from shirts to backpacks- to absorb greenhouse gases.
